 Our Friday Speaker:

Philip Dubois, PhD

Chancellor,
UNC Charlotte


"Ten Things to Watch at UNC Charlotte"

A native of Oakland, California, Philip L. Dubois attended the University of California, Davis, where he graduated in 1972 with an undergraduate degree in political science, earning election to the Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi honor societies. He then earned master's (1974) and doctoral (1978) degrees in the field from the University of Wisconsin Madison. Dubois began his academic career in 1976 at the University of California, Davis.

 

Over the next 15 years, he rose through the faculty and administrative ranks to full professor and held various administrative posts, including associate vice chancellor for academic affairs. In 1991, Dubois was recruited to UNC Charlotte, where he spent the next five and a half years as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. Dubois was credited with drafting a strategic academic plan, leading the development of the university's first comprehensive campus wide plan for information technology, and initiating programs to better serve nontraditional adult students. Under his leadership, UNC Charlotte also planned and launched its first doctoral programs.

 

On March 18, 2005, Dubois was named UNC Charlotte's fourth chancellor and assumed that role on July 15. Dubois has focused his efforts on building the University's visibility and support in the Charlotte region; long range planning for an expected enrollment of 35,000 students; completion of key capital construction and renovation projects in excess of $1.2 billion; improvement in the efficiency and effectiveness of critical business processes; and implementation of an intercollegiate football program starting in the fall of 2013. During his tenure, completed applications among freshmen and transfer students have grown by 91%, while overall enrollment has climbed to nearly 29,000 (a 38% increase).

 

Recent community recognition for Dr. Dubois and UNC Charlotte includes the Charlotte World Affairs Council World Citizen Award (2016), the CASE District III Inclusion and Diversity Leadership Award (2015), the Leo M. Lambert Engaged Leader Award (2014), the Belk Innovation in Diversity Award (2013), the Charlotte Energy Leadership Award (2013), the Charlotte Cornerstone Award (2012, for positive economic impact), the Creative Thinker's Award (2012, for UNC Charlotte Center City), and the Charlotte Regional Partnership Jerry Award (2009, for public sector contributions to economic development).

Because I'm allergic to the print ink on most books this is the only way for me to enjoy a book. This is an option for those who missed getting a real book through Senior Scholars and are comfortable reading on a computer, phone or other device
